Farewell Luke Jackson

Recommended Posts

Not sure if anyone saw the list in the HS this week of top 100 paid players we had by far the most and at the pointy end to. Got me thinking with Picket out of contract and Brayshaw just recently committing on big coin to, was losing Jackson or someone else on big money inevitable, unless players are willing to take big cuts to stay together.  When compared to cats our list looks very top heavy contract wise. If the figures are to be believed we simply can’t afford Jackson 700-800 and Pickett 600-700, along with all the role players who will be demanding more than minimum like spargo, sparrow, petty, Jordan, bedford and a host of resent picks in the vfl. We might still loose a few but perhaps keeping Jackson means we loose them all.

With the price of Land skyrocketing in the Jeelong area, I imagine that quite a few blocks are distributed amongst the Playing list. Disguised deeply within clauses of course

If Jacko goes we desperately need another young developing Ruck to replace Max in the future.

Do we have anyone?? I dont mean some burned out injured over priced hack...

Paddy Ryder anyone? I genuinely thought he was voluntarily retiring but that might not be the case.

Obvious risk with his age and body but if you got 1 season and 15 games out of him…

clearly on strategy for Goodwin’s game plan and would come a lot cheaper than Grundy…

It’s a decent idea. You would want a developing ruckman too for the games Ryder will miss.

I like the idea of Ryder as a stopgap measure rather than pursuing Grundy for 5 years on $700. Ryder's impact on games is obvious, and has shown more ability up forward than Grundy.

Maybe that is where Meek comes into the picture… give him one additional year of apprenticeship under Ryder/Gawn 

Maybe. But I don’t rate Meek on the little I have seen of him and I want 90 cents in the jackson dollar so to speak. If he is ‘worth’ 15 cents - I don’t want that diluting what we get back. What we get back has to inevitably replace Ben Brown in 2024 as FF in a top 4 team at least IMO.

SEN ..AFL trades reporter matter of factly saying Jacksons gone but still a toss up between the eagles and freo as to who signs him.

I cant believe that we would take Grundy in a three way swap involving Darcy and the massive salary package  that comes with him. Pies wont compensate us.They've tried worming out of the Treloar salary dump with the bulldogs.

Thanks alot LJ. Tempting to drop him  for the finals but cant. No-one to replace him. He better play well for us before jumping ship.

Wouldn't worry about the SEN trade reports - most of them would be way off the mark.

Nick Bryan from Essendon would be one that I'd target. Reportedly open to a move. Essendon confident he will stay, but they are a rabble atm. Could be an easy get.

Blaming Jackson?? He’s already been playing well for us in the last few games and I can’t see him slowing down for the remaining games. I hate this idea that if someone is likely to leave the club, they should be made to play out their remaining games in the VFL.

Jackson obviously loves the club and his team mates, but he obviously has a strong desire to be in the same place as his family.

I just spent a happy bit of time watching Isaac Keeler tapes on youtube.

I'm a lot less afraid of losing Jackson than I was.

Good set shots with bonus level outside 50, smart field kicking that doesn't overreach, high initiative, actively looks for teammates, and as a ruck-forward he gets handball receives on the run at half back and uses them effectively.

We're going to want to get a pick to make sure of him.

Much better looking than Jackson, too.

People have written comparisons to Paddy Ryder but when you add the run through the middle aspect he's actually a bit more like a lanky Adam Goodes, or, day I say it, a slightly more regular-human Luke Jackson.

My 'hot take' (as in, a statement not to be taken too seriously) is that if we lose Jackson our final trade and draft result will be Isaac Keeler with a top-10 draft pick (my guess is Gold Coast's pick 7 via Fremantle) as well as a competitive mid-age ruck-forward on moderate coin (or Grundy if Collingwood can be sucked into paying at least half his salary for lols) and probably still have a 2023 first round pick left over.

Amazing how these trade 'gurus' make up trades.

No-one has come up with a realistic trade for Jackson.  They talk of this or that player and late first round pick(s) which is nothing like his worth, not that we will get his true worth.  So unrealistic!  Their Jackson values are just not comparable to the other trades they happily propose, like:

  • Rankine to the Crows for their first pick #5 plus a 2nd round/third round pick.  They base that on the Cera trade.
  • a good 1st round pick plus a player for Grundy and his salary.

They are blind to the imbalance of those trades vs Jackson...because they don't have a clue how the Jackson deal will get done.  Lots of salt grains needed when hearing trades options for Jackson.

All for it personally and was saying it before his retirement. I'd prefer this than moving heaven and earth to get Grundy. 

However as others have mentioned we need someone waiting in the wings as well. I'm not wowed by what I've seen of Meek.

I've heard several times the going rate for Rankine is two first rounders.  Jackson is worth much more than that and I can't see Freo especially being able to make it happen.  It's going to be a very intriging October and November.

Maybe West Coast had to be sure they didn’t have pick 1, before they started to seriously chase Dogga. No one has traded pick 1 for a long time. Pick 2 would be fine though, and along with pick 20, sounds pretty fair to me. Then go after Cadman

According to the "The West" today, Jackson agreed to terms months ago with Freo, though west coast are hopeful.  They'll need to come up with a good deal, not sure how they will do it without offloading value players to us other for a draft pick.  

As for Ryder, great but too old.  I'm sure the club can locate some developing ruckman or pinch on from another club.

He’s a big boy. Time to make a family of his own!

- He was still in decent form when he played

- Could he a nice stop gap for a year along with a younger Ruck

- Has forward craft

- Would be a hell of a lot cheaper than Grundy

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals.

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
